Stationary Engine

Well, here we are, right in the middle of the show season and what better time to start thinking about next year's shows?! Many people who are active in their local club will also get involved with organising their club shows, and one member of our internet mailing list who is in this position asked for some input to help make his show better than ever next year.

What makes an engine show great'??

This is in order to help some of the smaller shows grow and the others to improve upon our ideas. So tell us what do you like and dislike about the shows you attendgive us your ideas!!!!!!!

I know from experience that the show at Waucanda, Illinois, is a VERY nice show.

What I think makes it so nice is that people are at their displays most of the day explaining to the city slickers (who tend to wear high heels in the grass) how people USED to do things. It is not a large show, and there is no swap area, but it is a very nice show for local people to attend to learn about the history of farming.

So, my choice would be where people had a demo going on and were explaining to the people how things work.
